Row by Row: Building a Strong, Sustainable and Successful College Farm

This year at LVAIC we focused on looking back at our our beginning and seeing what is working at LaFarm. Check out our presentation below!

For fun we looked at our “10 Best Things” at LaFarm so far. Every year we look forward to a new season, but before we do we reflect on the previous year and decide what has worked & what can be improved.

Our 10 Best:

  1. Good Agricultural Practices
  2. Value Added Products
  3. Standardized Production
  4. Partner with Pan Hellenic & regular work days w/ Delta Upsilon
  5. LaFFCo- Lafayette Food and Farm Co, LEAP, VIC & Excel
  6. Solar Irrigation
  7. On Campus Farm Market
  8. On Campus Dining & Events
  9. Partner w/ Area Non-Profits
  10. Annual Reports w/ Self Audit

After completion of major projects it is informative to determine your farms ‘10 Best things’.
